Dramatic increases in infant mortality, cancer and leukaemia in the Iraqi
city of Fallujah, which was bombarded by US Marines in 2004, exceed those
reported by survivors of the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima
and Nagasaki in 1945, according to a new study.
Iraqi doctors in Fallujah have complained since 2005 of being overwhelmed
by the number of babies with serious birth defects, ranging from a girl
born with two heads to paralysis of the lower limbs. They said they were
also seeing far more cancers than they did before the battle for Fallujah
between US troops and insurgents.
Their claims have been supported by a survey showing a four-fold increase
in all cancers and a 12-fold increase in childhood cancer in under-14s.
Infant mortality in the city is more than four times higher than in
neighbouring Jordan and eight times higher than in Kuwait....
